Review Copy: NetGalleyBook Blurb from Goodreads:
THIS IS A ONE CHAPTER SAMPLER FROM UNHINGED.Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the guy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly seductive Morpheus and the vindictive Queen Red. Now all she has to do is graduate high school and make it through prom so she can attend the prestigious art school in London she's always dreamed of.That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didn’t show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest in the dark, challenging Wonderland—where she (partly) belongs.As prom and graduation creep closer, Alyssa juggles Morpheus’s unsettling presence in her real world with trying to tell Jeb the truth about a past he’s forgotten. Glimpses of Wonderland start to bleed through her art and into her world in very disturbing ways, and Morpheus warns that Queen Red won’t be far behind.If Alyssa stays in the human realm, she could endanger Jeb, her parents, and everyone she loves. But if she steps through the rabbit hole again, she'll face a deadly battle that could cost more than just her head.
Oh boy. I should have read the first book, Splintered first! It slipped from my mind that this is a chapter sampler for book TWO. I was like "It's a chapter sampler." Just didn't know it's from book 2. :/ But I read it, just 30 minutes or less. I'm hooked. I need to read the first one. But it kind of spoiled the first book to me since it basically showed or converse to readers what happened in first book even though it's short introduction.
And whole time I was reading it, I feel like I'm reading a faerie kind of book. The usual fae, the they can't lie fae and all that. I like reading those kinds of stories too. Missed it even because I haven't read those kinds for a long time now.
And all I could say is good job at keeping me interested. I was looking for something short to read and I'm like on my 3rd or 4th one then I picked this up. It kept me reading until the very end. Need to read Splintered soon!
